As a woman, I feel as disenfranchised by a male priesthood and holy orders as men are by being unable to bear children. That is to say, ...http://clericalwhispers.blogspot.com/2017/02/deaconesses-are-we-asking-right.html

For the next few weeks I kept reflecting on that prepared waiting for the moment- it was so compelling in its dark, hushed stillness. It seemed familiar, but not from church...yet I ...http://platytera.blogspot.com/2017/02/a-southern-catholic-thing.html

So what I've done in the past is to incorporate as much of the Archbishop's homily into my own. The readings we heard today emphasize light and darkness – and the invitation for us ...http://frmartinfox.blogspot.com/2017/01/being-christs-light-here-are-3-ways.html
